Canada’s leading publication for electrical professionals, Electrical Business Magazine (EBMag), has launched a nationwide Electrical Safety Champion Awards program, which aims to recognize Canadian companies and individuals who are passionate about promoting the health and safety of Canadian electrical workers (www.ebmag.com/esca).
It’s time that those companies and individuals who work hard to establish a safe work environment that helps ensure employees return home in one piece are recognized, said EBMag’s editor Anthony Capkun. “The Electrical Safety Champion Awards program is—to the best of our knowledge—the first and only program of its kind in Canada, open to all Canadians across our nation.”
The program recognizes this commitment to health and safety across several categories, and applicants are even permitted to nominate themselves. The awards recognize both individuals and organizations as evaluated against criteria that reinforce:
• leadership and influence,
• education, information and awareness,
• advancing knowledge or standards.
The Award Categories include:
• Electrical Contractor (small, 6-49 employees)
• Electrical Contractor (large, 50+ employees) * Sponsored by Southwire Canada
• Electrical Maintenance Team (2+ persons) * Sponsored by CSA Group
• Electric Utility
• Individual Champion (1 person)
Capkun added a heartfelt thank you to the trailblazers who have signed on as founding sponsors of Canada’s first national electrical safety awards program, namely CSA Group (www.csagroup.org) and Southwire Canada (www.southwire.ca).
